Remembering a colleague

We are sad to announce that our friend and former colleague, Fiona Mcfarlane, lost her battle with cancer recently.

Fiona was an outstanding English teacher who spent her 22 years at the school inspiring our pupils and their love of reading.

We know that you will wish to join us all in sending your condolences to Fiona’s family who are in our thoughts at this sad time.

S1 Excellent Projects

Our S1 pupils have been working hard on their Excellent Projects for a few months now.  The creative responses to the books read by the pupils have been incredible – there are some really imaginative pieces.

Visitors to the school can view some of the projects in the LRC.

Book amnesty

Do you have a class textbook lurking in your house?  Do you keep meaning to drop books off to your teachers or the LRC?

The subject faculties and LRC are asking all pupils in S4, S5 and S6 to return books belonging to the school.  Staff are preparing resources for the change of timetable in June and need to have all the books – textbooks, class texts, library books etc. –  ready for use with the new classes.

In particular, all books used for National 5 and Higher courses should be returned as a matter of urgency.  Books, class textbooks and LRC books, can be dropped off to the LRC or English Faculty during the Induction Day on Friday, 31st May.

Many thanks for your support.
